Martha Stark, M.D., a graduate of Harvard Medical School and the Boston Psychoanalytic Institute, is a holistic (adult, adolescent, and child) psychiatrist/psychoanalyst and integrative medicine specialist in private practice in Boston, Massachusetts and a renowned faculty member at several psychoanalytic institutions. Her enthusiastic approach invites participants to enjoy and highlight the significance of the psychotherapy relationship. She is the author of seven acclaimed books and the founder of Synergy Med, integrating traditional and non-traditional solutions to physical and emotional wellbeing.
She wanted to be a mathematician in college, but quickly realized she wanted a profession where she could use her heart as well as her mind. What is clearly going to be her legacy is her five-model approach integrating traditional and non-traditional solutions. She talks about the “quantum entanglement” theory which brings out the best in both the therapist and the client.
